As Christians, Jesus calls us to feed the hungry. As youth workers, we are called to disciple the next generation in the ways of Jesus. Sometimes those calls feel simple, and other times insurmountable. And oftentimes it can be challenging to process both of those calls in light of each other. Listen in as Roberta Gramlich from the Canadian Foodgrains Bank and Denise Van Wissen talk about the ways that we can respond to hunger effectively, but also in light of your calling as a discipler of students.
Our friends over at Canadian Foodgrains Bank have put together a learning and reflection guide to help your youth ministry deepen their understanding of justice, poverty, and global hunger from a Christian perspective.
You can download the guide here: www.foodgrainsbank.ca/hunger-for-justice.
You can also the on demand webinar where you’ll be introduced to the work that Christian communities across Canada are doing through the Foodgrains Bank to support communities around the world who experience hunger. You’ll also receive a walkthrough of the learning and reflection guide for youth groups, which offers step-by-step ideas that you can use to inspire students to learn more about global hunger and help them process the practical steps they can take. Responding to hunger starts with giving, praying, learning, and advocating–all of which will be covered through this guide that you can use in your ministry starting this week.
